Hello everyone. I am a new user but have been lurking for a long time. I currently live in Baltimore MD but my family (husband and two preschool-age sons) will be moving in spring 2012. My husband will be working in Elkton MD but we are looking at the Middletown area, specifically the Appoquinimink school district. Our main constraint is that we need to be no further than a 30-minute drive from Elkton.

I've been doing research on neighborhoods for months now and we've even made the trip over a few times to drive around and have a look. The three neighborhoods that interest us the most are Parkside, Back Creek, and Bohemia Mill Pond.

We were particularly interested in the Parkside neighborhood, but have some questions about it and I was wondering if any of you would have any answers. First of all, if you look at the neighborhood on Google Maps, it lists some streets that don't appear to actually exist. In fact, it looks like half the neighborhood is "missing." Did they decide to stop construction, or are there plans to continue? If so, when?

Also, I came across a site where Parkside residents were complaining about neighborhood amenities that had not yet been built, even though they were promised when sale contracts were signed. The site was a couple of years old and I could not find more recent information. From what we could tell a pool and clubhouse have been constructed, but are there still promised amenities (tennis courts, tot lots) that haven't been built?

Thank you all for any insight you have.

I thought they were still biulding in Parkside. I might be wrong though. It is a beautiful community.

I'm pretty sure they are. Whenever I drive past, there are still construction vehicles there. When I looked at it on google maps, I could see the pool, a tennis court, and a tot lot all in the same area. Haven't seen them in person, though.

I don't know much about the other communities.

We live in The Legends next to Parkside. They are still building in Parkside. We loved the development but needed to move quickly and at the time they offered no quick delivery homes. Their clubhouse and pool are up. Check the feeder pattern for schools on the Appoquinimink School District site. I think that the model/office is still open at Parkside for more info.

I concur with Bac0s, but usual complaint now about Parkside homes is that they are too close to each other compared to first sections ... that is also evident on Google map aerial photos.

well, I always kind of liked the layout BECAUSE of the smaller lots. my impression is, that lots of people ask for a big lot and then don't ever use it. therefore you have common space, can go for a nice neighborhood stroll ... for some an disadvantage, for some not.

but I actually don't know anybody living in the neighborhoods mentioned, sorry

We did notice this -- the newer-looking houses seemed to be the ones on the smaller lots. So are they likely done building on the larger lots?
